twin peaks tavern as 401 castro street as a land mark. >> sponsor scott wiener. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman. today before us is an ordinance to landmark the twin peaks tavern at 401 castro street right at the corner of castro and market. twin peaks is truly one of the gems of the castro and of the san francisco lgbt community and has been since it opened 40 years ago in 1972. and perhaps most unique about twin peaks is that it was the very first gay bar with large visible windows so that anyone walking by would see who was inside. until then and in a lot of areas of the world we still have this, you have gay bars with windows that are hidden so people can sneak in because they are not comfortable or even safe doing so. so twin peaks was a trail blazer in that respect. the bar symbolizes the lgbt community's coming out in san francisco, that our community would no longer be in the shadows and we see since then the great strides we have made as an lgbt community and around the world. i will say on a personal note i recall the very first time i came to the castro, which was i
